Embroidered Necklace #2

It's still not completely finished.  I made some ribbons by melting the edges of some silky fabric I had (I'm trying very very hard not to buy anything new and just use what I've got) and I need to get the ribbons attached and then add a backing to the piece.  Although sticking it would be slightly easier I think I'm going to go for the sewing option.  I'm pretty pleased with this:

Once it's all finished I intend to make some more, using different colour-ways (and as I say, it'll all be with bits and bobs that I have already).  I love the way that one thing leads to another!

And speaking of which, I made some organza flowers at the weekend.  I'm not entirely sure what I shall use them for but I feel another necklace coming on.  And I shall  be making some pink ones this week too hopefully.  My daughter's school is having a craft fayre in March (I'm trying to encourage my daughter to make some bracelets to sell from the beads I gave her for Christmas) and I figured that my usual stuff might not sell, so I shall be making more bracelets and things myself as well as these pretty flowers as they will go well on clips.

Once I come up with something for these flowers I'll let you know.


  1. Can't wait to see your finished necklace. I wonder why you feel your crafts won't sell, they are lovely. Go on, give it a go, you might be pleasantly surprised.

  2. I love the necklace and the organza flowers are gorgeous!Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a lovely comment.I look forward to seeing your cards!

  3. Lovely flowers. I know what you mean about using what you've got, I seem to be spending money in all directions at the mo, but surely I've got loads of stuff already?

  4. A late visitor from last week's Handmade Monday or an early one for this week, loved reading your blog and your necklaces and flowers are beautiful!
